I noticed you have the low voltage at a high 32v I dropped mine to 29 my keep current is 85% and running 22a, your settings at 1,3,5 7,9 are a bit on the low side, I have 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% respectively seems logical at the 5 levels, my start power I've dropped to 20% from 30Curious! I wonder if yours is unique in that respect?
I did a 32.6 mile ride today.
The new controller has completely resolved the issue with the wacky battery gauge - it is far more stable and no longer drops down and then recovers when going up a long steep hill.
Whether this is merely a fix for a display issue or a change in the way power is drawn from the battery I do not know.
Today I had current limit=20Amps, Current Decay=7, Keep current = 60%. Original battery. The bike performed really well and still had 2 bars out of 10 on the display at the end of the ride.
I am tempted to bump up Keep Current to 75% for my next ride and then call it a day with regards to tuning.
